The magic of the single note!

I remember several years ago when teaching a young Bass student, introducing him to the “Magic of the single note” when playing in 3/4 time. He didn’t get it!
He couldn’t understand that one note played with the right dynamic, length and feel was far better for the waltz than many and that it would swing, anyone who dances will know exactly what I mean.
I tried to tell him that most of the time less is more and the role of the Bassist is to provide the foundation and swing in the song…..he still didn’t get it!
